  68. So fun!!! We love the beach, too!

  69. Yeah man, part in parcel of playing at the beach, especially if there's no shower up at the end of the sand beginning of the road to wash yourself up with.
    I think a little vacumme in the car though every now and then is worth being able to go to the beach.
    It's the biggest thing or one of, that I miss about NZ.

  91. Love your beach pics. Fun times for sure!
